The National Parks formed in Provo, Utah in early 2013. To date, the band has released two full length albums (“Young” and “Until I Live”) and one standalone single (“As We Ran” – written for the documentary film “Love in the Tetons”). Despite operating as a true independent, the group’s music has climbed to #13 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart, top 50 on the iTunes’ Pop Chart, #5 on Billboard’s regional Heatseekers Chart, and has amassed over 10,000,000 Spotify streams.
In April 2016, “Monsters of the North,” a lead single from their second album, was awarded 1st Prize in the International Songwriting Competition for all unsigned artists. The National Parks was named Utah’s “Band of the Year” in 2016 by Salt Lake City Weekly and press from national outlets such as NPR’s All Songs Considered, CMT Edge, and Pop Matters has fueled additional momentum. To date, The National Parks has played in over 50 cities including performances at SXSW, Snowmass Mammoth Fest, MusikFest, School Nights at Bardot’s and Canadian Music Week.
